Visitors to Florence’s Accademia Gallery invariably come for one reason – to see Michelangelo’s magnificent statue of David. David has been on display here since 1873 along with the artist’s Slaves and St. Matthew. On a trip to the Accademia – originally founded in the 1780s – you’ll also be able to take in an important collection of Renaissance paintings by the likes of Botticelli and Ghirlandaio, the remarkable original plaster cast of Giambologna’s Rape of the Sabine Women, and the charming Museum of Musical Instruments.

Once you get into the musuem you would not want to get out. You'd love to keep admiring King David's statue and the abduction of the sabines statue. The rest of the sculptures and paintings are great as well.
Still had to wait
It seemed if you had a Fierenzi pass you did not need 'tiquets'
